In Episode 23, we started our discussion about preparing children to serve missions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. If you haven’t already listened to that episode, you can do that right here. Today’s episode is a continuation of that conversation.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
- Why work ethic is, perhaps, the most important quality of a good missionary, and how to help your kids develop it
- How to help children develop social skills (read: face to face interaction) when digital communication is their primary means of socializing
- How to help kids learn to be humble, and how to stop bragging in its tracks
- Why physical fitness is an often overlooked aspect of missionary preparation, and how to make it a priority
- Why teaching our kids to be obedient (even when they don’t want to) is key, and how we can do that while they are young
